They used a pass through x-bus (roughly 50x2 0,1 pins) that went out both sides and you used a lever to lock them together.

I had to run parts to the guy who serviced them, I did the PC's.

So you really didn't touch the settings at all, huh? Well, this print-out from my secret backup says otherwise
I once wrote a full screen trojan that looked just like a bios password prompt. After typing in the ******* it dumped you back to windows leaving a file with the password (muzette). Ten years later I still have it, but I don't have any morons still trying to keep password from their support person.
